how old are ur rotors? maybe there warping or ur wheels kinda bent or even ur tires. thats wat causes ur shaking in the steering wheel.

This is such a normal problem with our DSMs. I purchased my red TsiAWD new in 1991, it wasn't more than a few weeks (or months, memory is going :eek: ) when I got the steering wheel shakes when braking. The dealership even told me this is a common problem and that the rotors are most likely the problem. Would they replace them without a fight...no :mad: . Damn Satan. The red Talon still has the problem and my white (1992 TsiAWD) Talon does too but to a lesser degree. Now if the steering wheel shakes all the time, chances is that the problem lies within unbalanced tire and/or loose/damaged supension parts.
